Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

You might be a redneck if...

You run garden hose from your washer to your kitchen sink to keep it from freezing up!

But hey, it works! We leave it at a trickle like all our other water in this weather and voila, I get to sleep all night again instead of getting up thru the night to periodically run the washer.

The other day the wind was out of the north at 30+mph and our washer was freezing up in less than an hours time. I knew there was no way, getting up or not it would not freeze up totally. So I came up with this idea. The downside is my washer isnt actually hooked UP and hubby is the only one who can switch out the hoses so I'll catch up on laundry this weekend. MUCH better than frozen and busted pipes :)

Click to make larger, this is the temperature of my back room first thing Tues. a.m. This room is just off my kitchen mind you. THere is a 30 degree difference from the living room, thru the kitchen into the laundry room. un-REAL.

So there ya have it, my rednekkidness for all to see ROFL!

On a much more cultured note, I send an email to the admissions of my local college to find out how to go about enrolling and applying for financial aid for this fall! None too soon because to my shock the financial aid deadline is March 1! Hope you are all warm and cozy today...spring wherefore art thou!? xoxo melzie

PS American Idol note-was it just me or did they send home alot of awesome ones and keep several mediocre ones last night?! Survivor tonight I cant wait :D

Girl if it works it works.
I love that thermometer!!!
Im with you on AI I think they sent home alot of good ones. Some of the ones like that one last girl when they had the 2 girls. I think they shouldve kept the other one cause that girl is too stuck up. The only one that really stands out at me is the funny curly headed guy. I like him.
Hugs and love ya
Miss you as i told you ealier
